In 2017, Envision employees, families and friends, joined over 4,000 runners in the 10th annual Envision Financial Run for Water. Held at Mill Lake in Abbotsford, runners joined together to run the trail run on Sumas mountain, ultra-marathon, half-marathon, 10K and 5K runs, raising over $450,000 to build water well systems in Ethiopia.
